The lawsuit was filed in a California district court last week by Dave Cooper. He alleges that an update to Premiere Pro came with a flaw in the way it handles file management that resulted in the deletion of 500 hours of video clips that he claims were worth around $250,000.

After spending three days trying to recover the data, he admitted that all was lost, the lawsuit says.

That's why you make backups. His data can't have possibly been worth that much if he was obviously not interested at all in taking some precaution to data loss.
